This is a beautiful song about a horrible event. Well done Chris Wood, one of my favourite artists. A very fine artist in his own right and also a leading participant in the excellent Imagined Village project.

A moving tribute to the innocent Brazilian victim of a police operation.The sombre instrumentals are so appropriate. I was glad to read the subtitled lyrics, although Chris Wood’s diction was refreshingly clear.

Remember the team that murdered Menezes were the very same people of FRU from Northern Ireland. They could have arrested him at any time but they wanted the headlines of stopping a bomber moments before bombing.
